Demons ride the wind to vic­tory

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - LIFTOUT -

Koo wee rup didn’t score in ei­ther of the two quar­ters it kicked against the strong wind in the re­serves sec­ond semi-fi­nal.

But a six-goal third quar­ter with it car­ried the Demons through to the grand fi­nal.

Their third term against Phillip Is­land gave it a 21-point buf­fer that proved enough.

The Is­lan­ders could only man­age 1-3 for the quar­ter as Koo wee rup bot­tled up play.

Phillip Is­land can earn a grand fi­nal re­match if it can de­feat Da­lyston in Sat­ur­day’s fi­nal.

Da­lyston sur­vived a last quar­ter charge by Nar Nar Goon to get across the line in Sun­day’s first semi-fi­nal by five points.

The game looked a fore­gone con­clu­sion when Da­lyston led 6-9 to 1-7 at the three-quar­ter time break. It was not the case. Da­lyston, held score­less in the last term, was hang­ing on des­per­ately un­til the siren with Nar Nar Goon kick­ing 4-3 to get to the verge of vic­tory. pre­lim­i­nary
